Lunch at Rs 70: Inside a Mom’s Tiffin Business ft. Aastha Madaan


I ask, right from the time a daughter is born, she listens to her parents! She accepts who her husband is and leaves! But, why isn’t she a part of anything? A daughter should have a part! It is said, “where there is a will, there is a way” Today, we are here to meet Mrs. Vijaya Etikala, who is a great example of this! Mrs. Etikala runs a tiffin service in Delhi and she has a small dream! So, let’s get to know her dream with our special guest for today, Aastha Madaan! Guys, I’m not receiving a tiffin! I am at the place where all these amazing tiffins are made! So, let’s see! And yes, if you want some tips on how to be happy then listen to me and… …watch this video till the end because our guest today is a happiness expert! Sounds fun, right? Come, let’s see! Firstly, tell me something about yourself, Mrs. Vijaya? Mrs. Vijaya was a housewife before starting Etikala’s Kitchen! Then, I taught children at Creativity Adda how to cook food! The children and I used to arrange food together for 80-100 people in a day! So, Mrs. Vijaya, what are we cooking today? Today, we’ll cook Veg Pulao and Gajar ka halwa! Wow, gajar ka halwa! The name itself makes me salivate! You know guys, gajar ka halwa and suji ka halwa are my favorite! Which one is your favorite? Tell me in the comments below! Okay Mrs. Vijaya, shall we start making veg pulao? Yes! Tell me what is the first thing that we have to do for this! Firstly, the oil is heating and we’ll add all this to the oil! So, now we are waiting for the onion to turn a little brown! Yes! Okay! I thought about this and my husband’s retirement was near, we had to do something… …what will we do? Then, my children’s friends used to come at home to eat food! This way, Jigyasa from Slam Out Loud… …they gave me the first offer! Okay! You should do our catering! So, you didn’t even start your business before this first event? No, it wasn’t started! It started with catering! Yes, it started with this catering event! The onions have turned a little brown! This looks very healthy! I was married when I was 16 years old in 1992! We went to Kolkata for the first time! In Kolkata, there is a place named Dharmatala There we had idli in a South Indian shop! Okay! That is of Tamil Nadu! The idli was so hard and was for Rs.20! Then I thought, why can’t I do this? Not for Rs.20, but Rs.8 or Rs.10 and… …make it reach the people! At that time in 1992, Rs.20 meant a lot! Then, I told my husband about this but he didn’t even listen to me! It did hurt me but then my children came, I got busy in my life! I kept my ambitions on one side! After this, we’ll add water! Our water is hot now! The spices are cooked and the vegetables, if you see, are semi-cooked! Okay! They should not be cooked completely Then, we’ll add this rice! So, we don’t have to add anything to this after rice? No, we don’t have to add anything, just the rice! Now, we’ll let it cook completely! We’ll cover it! At least 10 minutes? Yes, it will take 10 minutes! So, our pulao is ready now! Yes! I am making the tiffin now! Okay! Till then, please take this outside and grate this! Grate this? For the halwa? Yes! I am ready to do all the work for halwa! Let’s go! Guys, I’ve worked so hard in today’s episode! See, I’ve grated so many carrots but there is one thing… …the feeling while grating carrots is something else, right? Right? That too in winters! Let’s go! The carrots are ready! Wow! You’ve done so well! Let’s start! We’ve kept the utensil and we’ll add ghee! 1 kg of grated carrots in 150 grams of ghee! We’ll add it directly! After adding, we have to continuously stir it! How long will we cook it? How will we know when it’s ready? Right now, it looks a little hard! We will wait till it gets a little soft! So, we will mix it till it gets a little soft! What else will we add in our gajar ka halwa? We’ll add milk and sugar to it! And after that we can add dry fruits according to preference! So, only with these simple 5-6 ingredients, we can make this amazing gajar ka halwa! Yes, but it takes a lot of time! So, when your kids were small and you couldn’t start this work… …what were your struggles like? I am a small town girl! The people of the society never used to ask about us A question always came to my heart… …a girl or a woman has no value of her own? There is, definitely! Above everyone else! They say so but, there is a difference between saying and giving that value! I want to give Etikala’s Kitchen to my daughter. I want to take it to new heights! It has been completely roasted in ghee! Now, we’ll add milk to it! How much milk is this? This is half litre of milk but we won’t add it all! You’ve already boiled it a little, right? Yes! We don’t have to add cold milk? No! If you add cold milk, it might get spoiled! We’ll keep stirring it! It takes a lot of hard work to make this gajar ka halwa! First, you need to grate all the carrots and then keep stirring it! Then you need to add… …half kg sugar? Yes! But, I’ll add 300-350 grams of this! If we want it to be medium sweet, we’ll add 300-350 gm of sugar in 1 kg carrots! Yes! Gajar ka halwa is a North Indian dish! Yes! But, in South India, people add these dry fruits after roasting them in ghee! We’ll do it this way! A slight change okay? Okay! The color is amazing! You see, no food color, no saffron! We’ve added nothing! The texture has changed too! It looks like jelly! It’s perfect, right? Absolutely! We shall turn it off now! Oh! It’s done? That’s it? Now in this? We’ll add some dry fruits! This is according to your own preference, right? Yes, as you wish! We’ll add some khoya to it! Just a little from the top? Yes! Should I mix? Our food is ready! Mrs. Vijaya is adding her final touches and our special guest is waiting for us! So, let’s go for the tasting! Hi Aastha, you made it! Hi, welcome! Guys, she is Aastha Madaan! She has her own YouTube channel where… …she gives tips on mental health and lifestyle to people, right? Yes and Pallavi, I follow Rasoi Project because you make so beautiful and inspiring videos! Nice! Oh, Mrs. Vijaya is here! This is our amazing tiffin! Don’t we miss our school time as soon as we see a tiffin? I know! And our tiffin was always empty by lunch time! And then we used to enjoy having food from someone else’s tiffin! I know! Those days were amazing! After talking, I miss school even more now! Guys, you know, I really miss my school time! Do you miss your school time as well? Tell me in the comments if you do! And now, we’ll make Aastha eat our veg pulao! I can’t stop! Don’t stop! Can I pause you because I can’t wait anymore! Tell me? Presenting to you, gajar ka halwa made by me! You made it? Yes! Honestly? Semi-honestly! See, I grated the carrots! I kept stirring it for so long! Sure, definitely! Mrs. Vijaya did a little work too! A little! I’m sure! Wow! Is there a better stress buster in life than food? Amazing! Let me eat! Personally, for me, the aroma of the food is a stress buster! But, I’ll tell you a very quick trick! Okay! So, whenever you feel sad in life or restless and you don’t know what is happening… …just take a blank sheet of paper and start writing on it! Write whatever comes to your mind! The trick is, you don’t have to lift the pen up before 5 minutes! Like, put an alarm and don’t lift your pen before that and after 5 minutes, you’ll feel the difference! What you were feeling before those 5 minutes and what you feel after 5 minutes! It’s very interesting! Try this! Guys, you must try this and tell Aastha did it work for you or not? Just pour everything out at once and that’s it! It’s an amazing cathartic technique! It’s so good! So guys, if you too missed your school and college days after watching this video… …then make sure you share it with your school friends and your current friends too! And make sure you give this video a big thumbs up for our special chef Mrs. Vijaya … …who is doing some very interesting work with her venture! Also, subscribe to EatTreat and to my channel called Mental Health and Chill! Alright! This is me Pallavi Batra signing off from The Rasoi Project for this time! We’ll be back soon! Come on, eat fast! I am taking this home too! Yes, we’ll pack it for you in a tiffin! This boy tells me I’ve gained 2-3 kgs of weight after eating your food! I always wanted a girl, but got a boy Then the second time, I told the doctor if it’s a boy you only keep him!

Outfit Ideas – How to Mix Prints and Patterns | JCPenney


[MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, I’m Brandi, Senior
Designer at JCPenney. Back to school shopping
isn’t just for kids. Teachers need new outfits, too. Kindergarten teacher
Emily wrote us asking for ideas on how to wear mix-and-match
prints for the classroom. Now, this is an assignment I can do. I’m back from the JCPenney
store and I’m ready to get this fashion class started. Pattern on pattern, yes and yes. This look is a really easy
way to be bold with fashion. When you mix patterns together,
try to keep one pattern bigger than the other, such as this smaller
stripe with large floral pattern. And if you don’t want to be super
bold, match the colors in your prints. Something else that is
really fun with this outfit is the new paper bag waist detail that
gives you a little ruffle at the waist. I just love this look. A great way to ease print and
pattern into your wardrobe is with accessories like this handbag. There are so many
patterns to choose from, like tropical, stripes, or floral. Use the pattern as
your outfit inspiration to create a simple look with these St.
Johns Bay white jeans and a solid top. This A.n.a. dress has the mixing
and matching done for you. The colorful print gives
you a fun fashion moment, and the tiered ruffled
bottom is a great silhouette. Plus, it’s easy to move in. Just add a white denim jacket
to break up the pattern and your classroom look is complete. [MUSIC PLAYING]

What To Wear This Fall – Women’s Fall Outfits | JCPenney Fall Fashion


Hi, I’m Bertha, Sr. Styling director at
JCPenney, and I’m back to answer your styling questions. Cassie, one of our
customers, wants to know what the most popular items will be this fall, so today
I’m going to show you some of our fall favorites you’ll want in your closet
right now. A dressed up sweatshirt is one of my fall favorites you’ll want to wear
pretty much every day. The fringe detail creates a fashion sleeve that’s so fun
and unexpected, I mean, how cute is this? Now you might be thinking a sweatshirt isn’t exactly something you’d wear to a party, but oh
yes it is when you pair it with a faux leather skirt and party ready heels, or
if you’re just not feeling the skirt throw in a pair of joggers, keep your
heels, then adjust your bag and head to that party feeling comfortable and chic On busy mornings nothing’s easier than
throwing on a dress you love and being able to walk out the door feeling put
together, am I right? This shirt dress is easy and comfortable,
but also has this great waist detail that gives you shape. Add some edge to
your office look with this pleather moto jacket and fabulous boots. I love the
idea of taking a chunky sweater and wearing it over the dress. This black
sweater works with the pattern of the dress and creates a totally different
look to transition into fall. This season you’re gonna see lace-up details on
everything. I especially love them on this comfy sweater gives it a little
something extra. We can all agree leggings in the fall or a beautiful
thing, but let me introduce you to the Ponte pant. Get excited, people! These are like a fancy legging, but they have a bit more structure and are made of thicker
fabric. It can take you anywhere: Girls night out with a coordinating heel and
cross body bag, or running errands with sporty sneakers and a backpack.

YOU. AND NOW THIS.>>WHAT AN EMBARASSMENT. THE DEMOCRATS TURNED POLITICS INTO A NAME-CALLING FARCE. THEY JUST CAN’T CONCEAL THEIR HATRED AN CONTEMPT FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP T WAS ALL ON FULL DISPLAY THIS WEEK WITH THE BARR HEARINGS. LOOK AT THIS, JUST PLAIN SILLY. REPRESENTATIVE STEVE COHEN EATING FRIED CHICKEN IN THE HEARING ROOM, IMPLYING THE ATTORNEY GENERAL WAS A CHICKEN FOR NOT SHOW UP FOR ANOTHER ROUND EVER INSULTING SLANDER. I CALL THAT JUVENILE. THINGS TURNED SERIOUS WHEN SPEAKER PELOSI SAID MR. BARR HAD LIED TO CONGRESS. THEM’S FIGHTING WORDS. WHAT WAS THE LIE EXACTLY? LET ME TRY TO EXPLAIN IT. BOB MUELLER SAID HE HAD SOME MISGIVINGS ABOUT BARR’S SUMMARY OF HIS REPORT. LATER BARR SAID HE DIDN’T KNOW WHETHER MUELLER SUPPORTED HIS SUMMARY. THAT IS WHAT SPEAKER PELOSI CONSIDER AS LIE. ON THIS, HANGS THE FUTURE OF THE REPUBLIC. DEMOCRAT LEADERS HAVE THROWN A TEMPER TANTRUM, ALL RIGHT? ENTER KIM STRASSEL “WALL STREET JOURNAL” COLUMNIST. TODAY SHE WRITES, THAT WHAT REALLY RATTLED THE DEMOCRATS IS MR. BARR’S INVESTIGATION OF HOW THE RUSSIA PROBE GOT STARTED IN THE FIRST PLACE. OW OH. THAT SPELLS TROUBLE. HE IS LOOKING AT THE DOSSIER, WHICH HILLARY CLINTON FUNDED. HE WANTS TO KNOW WHO LEAKED CLASSIFIED DETAILS OF THE PROBE. THAT IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IS ON IT. ONE LAST POINT. “THE NEW YORK TIMES” REVEALS TODAY THAT THE FEDS DID INDEED SPY ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN IN 2016 IS. WHO ORDERED IT? WHO KNEW ABOUT IT? ALL OF THIS EXPLAINS WHY THE DEMOCRATS ARE FURIOUS AT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. HE IS GOING TO FIND OUT WHAT SOME VERY POWERFUL PEOPLE WERE

ROLL TAPE.>>CAIR WAS FOUNDED AFTER 9/11 BECAUSE THEY RECOGNIZED THAT SOME PEOPLE DID SOMETHING AND THAT ALL OF US WERE STARTING TO LOSE ACCESS TO OUR CIVIL LIBERTIES. ASHLEY: WELL PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETED OUT A VIDEO SLAMMING OMAR FOR HER COMMENTS AND SPEAKER PELOSI THEN CAME TO OMAR’S DEFENSE AND HERE IS HER STATEMENT. QUOTE, THE PRESIDENT WORDS WEIGH A TON. HIS HATEDFUL AND INFLAMMATORY RHETORIC CREATES REAL DANGER. PRESIDENT TRUMP MUST TAKE DOWN HIS DISRESPECTFUL AND DANGEROUS VIDEO.

SOME PEOPLE DID SOMETHING.>>THAT IS NOT ANYTHING CLOSE TO WHAT IT WAS. THE WORST TERRORIST ATTACK BASICALLY IN WORLD HISTORY. ASHLEY: RIGHT.>>IT IS JUST A SHAME SHE CAN DO IT LIKE THAT. SHE WAS WRONG. CAIR WAS NOT FOUNDED AFTER 9/11. IT WAS FOUNDED IN 1994. THEY STARTED TO ADVOCATE MORE IN AFTER 9/11 A THE WAY A LOT OF MUSLIMS WERE TREATED AFTER 9/11. SHE WAS BORN IN SOMALIA. I’M FROM MONTANA. WE’RE BOTH AMERICANS. WE SEE THE UNITED STATES IN DIFFERENT LENSES. HER POINT TRYING TO GET MORE MUSLIMS MORE ACTIVE IN AMERICA. THEY ARE NOT GUESTS HERE. ASHLEY: IS THIS THE WAY TO DO IT.>>NOT AT ALL. SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE IS DOING. A FEW WEEKS AFTER THE BENGHAZI ATTACK, SHE TWEETED OUT “ALLAHU AKBAR!” WHICH MEANS GOD IS GREAT. I HEARD TERRORISTS YELL AT ME. SHE PUT UP PICTURES OF A MAP WITH ISRAEL GONE, A POST-IN NOTE, RASHIDA TLAIB, PALESTINE, WIPE IT OFF THE MAP. THAT IS NOT THE WAY TO DO IT. THE WAY SHE IS SAYING PEOPLE DID SOME THINGS, I THINK SHE MEANT, PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT IDEOLOGY DID THIS, NOT WHAT WE’RE DOING, SHE LIKES TO POKE THE BEAR, IF IT WAS OFFENSIVE, IT WAS OFFENSIVES. SHE WILL NEVER DO THAT. NOW SHE IS SPINNING IT AS THE VICTIM WHICH IS NONSENSE, THE’S REACTION, APPROPRIATE.>>IT IS APPROPRIATE. HE POSTS PICTURES OF PEOPLE WHO JUMPED TO THEIR DEATH OUT OF WINDOWS ON THE WORLD, OUT OF TALLEST TOWERS IN MANHATTAN BECAUSE FOR SOME REASON JUMPING TO YOUR DEATH WOULD BE INSTANT DEATH AS OPPOSED TO BURNING ALIVE AT 2500 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT. IT WASN’T JUST AMERICANS GOT HIT. PEOPLE FROM 90 COUNTRIES. MUSLIMS GOT KILLED THERE. THIS IS PRESIDENT’S TRUMP ATTACK ON WOMEN OF COLOR. THERE WERE WOMEN OF COLOR ON FLIGHT 93, ON THE PLANE THAT HIT THE PENTAGON. THIS IS NOT A FIGHT AGAINST ISLAM. IT IS OUR WAY OF LIFE. 2019 THE WESTERN WORLD TO INCLUDE MUSLIMS, JEWS, CHRISTIANS EVERYONE AGAINST THIS IDEOLOGY. ASHLEY: WE’RE OFTEN TOLD YOU FIGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY. YOU HAVE FOUGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY TO PROTECT THE FLAG, EVERYTHING THAT IT STANDS FOR, FREEDOM OF SPEECH. THIS IS FREEDOM OF SPEECH.>>IT IS FREEDOM OF SPEECH. OF COURSE IT IS. ASHLEY: HOW ANGRY DOES IT MAKE YOU?>>IT DOWN MAKE ME ANGRY. INSTEAD OF THIS RESISTANCE, I’M ON THE LEFT, YOU’RE ON THE RIGHT, GET IN A ROOM TO SOLVE IT. WHEN I WENT OVERSEAS AND FOUGHT WITH MARINES, FOUGHT NEXT TO ARMY, NAVY, AIR FORCE I FOUGHT WITH MUSLIMS, IRAQI, CHRISTIANS. I DIDN’T TAKE A SHORTCUT FOR THE WHITE GUY, THE BLACK GUY. IT WAS A COALITION. FOR THEM TO SAY HE IS SHOWING PICTURES AND VIDEOS OF 9/11, THAT IS TRIGGERING, SO YOU DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM BY IGNORING THAT BUT YOU CAN CALL US NAZIS TODAY? THAT WAS, THAT IS BAD. ASHLEY: DANGEROUS RHETORIC.>>THEY SAY, IT TRIGGERS PEOPLE. YOU KNOW WHAT? WE SHOULD BE FORCED TO WATCH 90 SECONDS OF THAT EVERY DAY AFTER WE SAY THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE. THIS IS REAL. THEY HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN ABOUT US. THEY DON’T WANT TO KILL US BECAUSE WE’RE AMERICANS.

from me today’s video is a Fashion Nova try on haul I haven’t been shopping on a
Fashion Nova lately because one I’m gaining weight I mean getting healthy
and two I’ve been trying to save my money but yet I’m making this video starting
with tops I got the wifey crop top in off-white at first glance it looks
like a wife-beater just chopped in half there’s not much to say about this it’s
a cute basic crop top it’s thick I can tell you that the material is thick I
picked this up in a size small and it was $12.99 the next top that I picked
out is called the Camilla short sleeve top it’s just a short sleeve cropped top
things get a little spicy on the back comes with this crisscross detailing on
it which was a total surprise to me because apparently I forgot how to
online shop I only looked at the first picture which was just the front of it
and this was just a surprise to me I thought I was just getting a regular
plain crop top but no I picked this up in a size small and it was $9.99
sticking with crop tops I picked up this Adele halter top it’s just a simple
black halter cropped top I really don’t know why I’m buying crop tops like it’s not
snowing here in Holland it’s like my mind is in America but I’m stuck here I
picked this up in a size small and it was 7.99. the next thing I got was this feel so good cropped off the shoulder top it’s a
long sleeve crisscross front crop top just a fancier crop top I got this
because I felt like it would showcase my broad shoulders really pretty I was
right so that’s all that matters I picked this up in a size small and
it was $17.99 moving into bodysuits I got this I’m in love velvet bodysuit in
the color champagne first off I freaking love that it comes in this ice velvet
material this is gorgeous it comes with adjustable spaghetti straps and there’s
padding in the cups I picked this up in a size small but I should have got a size
extra small I just thought it when you gain weight some of the weight goes here
yeah it does not good thing there’s adjustable straps I pick this up in a
size small and it was $27.99 moving into dresses I picked up this Aliana suede
dress in the color dusty pink it’s a suede off-the-shoulder midi dress
I freaking love the bottom of this dress I love that it has this ruffle detail
down here this dress it’s super form-fitting but it does have some give in it. I picked this up in a size small and it was 34.99 the next dress I got is
called the Kaitlin suede dress it comes in this faux suede material with a square
neckline and adjustable straps this dress is gorgeous it’s absolutely
stunning you hear me I think yellow is the new wave maybe it’s been the wave and
I’m just late I picked this up in a size small and it was $29.99 so I wanted to
try out a jumpsuit since I’m not a stick anymore so I
picked up the this season jumpsuit it’s a nasty NASTY NaStY catsuit it comes
with adjustable straps and it has skinny legs at the bottom I was inspired
to give this because I’m doing a spring lookbook and I wanted to do an all
pink outfit I kind of got too excited and posted a picture of me with this on
my IG [go follow my socials] I’m really really loving this jumpsuit it’s
definitely not for the faint of heart because when you put this on it hugs
your body so much it feels like you have no clothes on I picked this up in the
size small and it was $12.98 So moving into bottoms I picked up the Catalina wide leg slit front pants you guys these pants are gorgeous. They’re a high rise, no stretched, flare leg pant. Theyre also see through but the back of the see throughness is an invisible zipper I really really really really wanted to love these. I
kind of wish that it was a better quality pant. I’m not a fan of see-through
bottom they’re really cute so I guess I would just work around the fact that
they’re very see-through I picked these up in a size small and they were
$34.99 so the next pair of pants I got a called in her element pants in black and
white. They’re a high-rise wide leg pant I love the grid print on here it also comes with an
elastic waistband to you know suck you in these pants are so versatile like you can
dress this up and you can for sure dress this down these are made out of some
great material they’re super comfortable I picked these up in a size small and
they were 32.99 the only pair of jeans I picked out are
the perfectly classic white denim jeans they’re just a basic high-rise
skinny-leg jeans but in a size five I know I keep saying this but like I’m
gaining weight and my size threes are getting a little too snug and I still
love fashion Nova so they will continue making my bum look great one thing I
will tell you guys is these jeans are a little see-through so be mindful that I
picked these up in the size 5 and they were $39.99. So moving into skirts I picked
up the chosen one and denim skirt it’s a distressed denim skirt I’m bringing you
hobo chic the rips on this skirt is absolutely gorgeous if you’re thinking
about buying this just do it because honey this is a gorgeous. I pick this up
in the size small and it was $24.99 the next start that I got is the Ziggy skin
tight latex skirt and rose gold it’s a beautiful high waist rose gold
midi skirt I love this skirt but it’s kind of hard to put on by yourself so
you will need help putting this on and it kind of smells when you first open it
but a good wash would get the smell right out of it this skirt is extremely
form-fitting so if you’re thinking about getting this I will tell you size up I
picked this up in a size small and it was $27.99 finally the last thing that I
got is the business casual coat and off-white is it long sleeve self tie jacket. great quality it kind of reminds me of a robe I don’t have
anything in my closet that looks anything like this so I wanted to give
it a try I don’t know if I like it yet but it’s there if I ever need it I
picked this up in a size small and it was 36.99 so that wraps up today’s

How To Create a Clean & Simple Audio Spectrum in After Effects Tutorial


hey what’s up everyone I’m Ignace Aleya
from Toleratedcinematics.com and today it’s the first motion graphic Mondays if
you enjoy my videos be sure to hit the subscribe button and hit the bell icon
to make sure that you get notified when I upload new videos alright so today I
will be talking about something really cool! We’re going to be creating a really
simple and clean audio spectrum in Adobe After Effects, many of you want to know
how its created. We’re going to create something awesome it’s going to be a
two-part tutorial but first let’s see the preview doesn’t that look cool? So today we’re
going to take a look on how to create everything in general so the basic setup
of the titles the audio spectrum the background and stuff like that and then
in the next part we’re going to take a look on how to add fine details like in
the background the particles and things like that so I would suggest that if you
don’t wish to follow this tutorial you can always go ahead on our website and
buy this template it also helps to support a channel so if you enjoy this
tutorial go and check out our website we have a bunch to offer so all the links
will be in the description the template actually includes a simple to follow
tutorial where you can adjust everything like the course and stuff like that
everything is optimized so it’s a little bit more advanced than what we’re going
to be seeing in this tutorial just so you know anyone that has any kind of
experience in Adobe After Effects can follow this tutorial so without further
ado let’s get started alright so here we are and it will be off your effects and
I actually prepared a few things that I already import it right here so first of
all is a music file which will everyone need if you want to use an audio
spectrum the audio actually comes from levite Oh beats he’s a great friend of
mine and he actually runs his own channel where we collaborate on frequent
basis so go and check it out he creates some really awesome beats and if you
want to use them you can actually use them for free and return that you credit
him in descriptions or even in your video if you’re that kind of nice guy so
I go ahead links will be in the description and then I also have this
image right here which I actually took when I was on a vacation in Spain and
this is Benny Durham so yeah without further let’s get started so I created a
new composition we can actually delete this so we can get started create a new
composition and this is going to be our main composition make it full HD in
resolution and 30 frames long make it as long as you want to and then click OK
then the first thing that you want to do is just drag in your audio file in that
composition you can actually see that our composition is a little bit too long
so we’ll just drag it right over here press M on the keyboard and trim comp to
work area okay and then once you’ve done that we can actually apply our image
right here to our composition and as you can
see our image is a little bit too yea big so what we will do is press s on the
keyboard and just kill this down like this right here
okay perfect a little bit bigger and there we go so we have our image now
what I want to do is kind of stylize my image a little bit more make it more
like a music kind of vibe like Spotify likes to do like a duotone effect and
what we’ll do is actually use a pretty cool effect and this is called Kurama so
we’ll create a new adjustment layer right here and this is going to be our
grading and our exposure okay so first of all we want to fade in our image so
we’ll go to effects color correction and apply a exposure effect to our image and
then just lower the exposure until you don’t see anything anymore like this and
click on the stopwatch ready exposure to create a keyframe you can now play a
press you on the keyboard to reveal that keyframe right here and then if we’re
going to move a little bit more in time we actually want to zoom in to our
timeline a little bit so we have a nice close-up 5 seconds 10 seconds and like
over 3 seconds we want to kind of fade it in back to 0 then 3 frames forward
I’m doing that with the page down key on my keyboard you can move ahead and just
decrease it a little bit move 3 frames for it again increase it a little bit
maybe this is a little bit too much for frames a little bit less and then a few
frames forward and then 0 desert and maybe a little bit less than 0 because
we actually want to work with text which will be white in the audio spectrum so
we want to kind of de expose our background a little bit so everything is
going to be a little bit easier to read afterwards perfect okay and now for
grading and this is on the same layer we’re going to apply the effect color
correction and color AMA and this is actually a really really cool effect you
can do a lot of cool things with this and but we want to open up the output
cycle right here and just and delete everything in here for the course and
then for the red we want to change that red color to a nice dark blue blue
ok click ok then we’re going to click over here and go to the pink color and
just create a nice pink color and we’re going to close this like this and
actually instead of pink let’s go for something a little bit warmer maybe more
towards this core and the blue can be even darker okay pretty cool so this
really creates something kind of a creative it doesn’t work with every
image but if you use like people you can do some really cool things it’s really
important that you kind of change or shift on the colors a little bit more so
maybe a little bit of blue here that we can add in right over here and maybe
darken it a little bit more there we go and then right here maybe a nice kind of
tinted orange let’s see beautiful look at that boys and girls isn’t that
beautiful so it’s so simple to create something really cool with Colorama you
can of course go ahead and do that in Photoshop but yeah we’re in
after-effects now and this is really simple to create okay so we can close
everything and now what we want to do is create our audio spectrum so we’ll right
click and create a new solid layer rename this to audio spectrum click OK
and then we’re going to go yeah effect generate audio spectrum for the color
for the audio spectrum we’ll changes to white so we can actually see it clear
right here we can actually see it already and the softness we can set this
back to 0 welcome back set this to say 0 the
frequency bands will change this to 175 and now what we want to do is go to our
audio layer and select our source which is the audio about that we already added
to our timeline the video waves it’s really important that you already have
it in your timeline otherwise it’s not gonna work then for the side options
we’re going to work with side a and that’s going to choose the top part and
yeah perfect so let’s see how that actually looks we can actually see that
well if we go a little bit more in time and in the beginning I think this is a
little bit to hide kind of D except a little bit
I don’t think that fits in my audio spectrum so what I will do is hold ctrl
and just drag the start frequency a little bit more to the right the reason
why I’m holding ctrl is it affects it a lot slower because if I’m going to hover
it immediately hits a thousand with control it’s going to move a little bit
slower actually shift is going to do the opposite thing where it actually is
going to move a lot faster then free and frequency something like 1500 and there
we go so now we have the nice animation our audio you can also go for the arm
maximum height and increase it a little bit if you want and I think that looks
pretty good okay so now what we want to do is actually move this start point and
the end point and a little bit more to the bottom so it actually is right here
but as you can see we have to move them individually which I don’t want to do so
I will do a quick solution and create a new null object and then just hit the
return key this is going to be our position Y for the spectrum so this is
just a reference we’re going to press B on the keyboard to reveal the position
for this one and then click on the audio spectrum before we continue this video I
would like to present you our website designed for filmmakers and video
editors to improve their workflow we offer templates presets high-quality
pre-made packs soundscapes essential graphics and much more if you don’t have
time to create something of your own or you just want to speed up your workflow
definitely check out our website with a link in the description below
and we’re going to hold alt and click on the stopwatch for the position of the
start point so I’ll click on the stopwatch right here now we’re going to
open the brackets we’re going to write a simple expression and enter value open
brackets 2 0 close brackets comma and now we want to just take our Y position
of the note and then we want to close or break it again so really simple
expression and open bracket value open bracket 0 close bracket comma equip the
Y position not to know itself but the Y position of no and then close the
bracket we want to copy this code to control C and just hold all the click on
the stopwatch for the end point and paste it also right here and now we’re
gonna you know what we can do actually is click on that middle we can actually
reposition this very easily like this for the audio spectrum I want to go back
here and a start point for the X I’m going to move it a little bit more to
the right because on the left side we’re going to add our timecode so for the
timecode I’m going to click on my text tool click over here and add a few zeros
like this and then just select your text and make it a little bit smaller if you
want to maybe irregular or medium text and now we have our fine code and for
the time code we’ll also need a little bit of a expression which I actually
already prepared for you guys you can download that also with the link in the
description it’s just a bunch of text that you need to paste in the right
position oh I already have it copied in the background so what I will do is
click on this arrow right here open the arrow for the text hold alt and click on
the stop points for the source text and paste the expression right here now we
can actually see immediately it works with seconds and minutes and yeah
perfect so just paste it and you don’t need to worry about a thing about code
or whatever so you can reposition this and there you go very simple okay and now we want to add our title
also so this will be the beats player and we want to make this bold and a
little bit bigger and position it maybe right here and now we want to duplicate
this text layer by holding ctrl and pressing D on the keyboard and then move
it a little bit more down go to the text tool select all of our text and now this
is going to be video waves with a which is the actual name of the song select it
and change it to a regular and a little bit smaller so we have a little bit of
variation going on maybe also make it a little bit wider like this and there you
go okay we also want to add like in nice vignette on the sides here so right
click new and add an adjustment layer and this is going to be our thing yet we
will rename this and very quickly and go to effect color correction curves and
just lower the curves so it darkens everything go to and the mask options
here ellipse tool and double click on the ellipse tool that’s going to add an
ellipse right here subtract it from the mask and then press F on the keyboard
and just increase the feather until it’s a nice soft blur and as you can see
right here this looks really cool we can actually put this below the grading and
this is going to give us a different kind of effect it depends on what you
want I think this looks pretty cool yeah now we want to animate our text in right
here so we’ll go to the beginning of our timeline and press T on the keyboard
click on the opacity set it to zero and over 5 seconds are actually over let’s
say 2 seconds we want to change this back to 100 okay then we’ll go to
animation and just to add a little bit of variation we’re going to animate text
also opacity and we’re going to do the exactly same thing so zero and then five seconds 100% and this is
going to be a different kind of opacity but we can actually manipulate this with
something different right here you actually see an arrow if we click on
this we can go for it selector and add a Wiggly effect to it and this is going to
wiggle or text a little bit as you can see it Wiggles on like so pretty cool
select all of these keyframes ctrl C to copy them and go to the beginning of the
timeline and click on the beat player and just paste it as well and now we
have this kind of animation we want to offset our libido a little bit so it
actually comes in beat player first and then the video comes in after there okay
perfect now we want to add our logo so let’s go back to our project manager and
import our logo to the composition go to align and center it right here press B
on the keyboard and click on the stopwatch for T position and go all the
way to the beginning and actually move down like this move to frame and two
seconds as well and then right click reset the position so we actually have
this kind of animation and it’s actually it has to be straight and that’s
actually the point going straight up like this press T on the keyboard and
we’re going to click on the stopwatch for yo pasady right here and in the
beginning set the opacity to zero press U on the keyboard to reveal all these
keyframes and line them up like this select the last keyframes and here we’re
actually going to add a nice easy in which is actually going to soften the
animation so go to keyframe Assistants easy ease and go to the and graph editor
right here and zoom in a little bit make sure that you’re working with the Edit
speed graph and we want to drag this in like so so now it’s going to speed up
and then slowly come to a stop like this and actually you want to do it a little
bit faster but that way you have a nice pop effect on our logo which is
riku afford a background I actually want to fade it in a little bit faster so
let’s go to our exposure keyframes wishes here in degrading and exposure
and we want to just drag this in a little bit okay here we have an
overexposure actually we’ll set this back to 0 and of course if you press you on the
keyboard for keyframes in particular you can select all keyframes hold alt and
drag them in to make them a little bit faster if you want to so that’s an easy
way to kind of tuck it in altogether and cool
okay so we’ll reposition my titles a little bit better closer to the spectrum
but that’s basically it on how to create the basic setup of the audio spectrum we
also need one more layer and this is going to be a solid layer this is going
to be our stroke and here if we go to effects and presets we can apply our
stroke to that solid layer that we just created as you can see you need a path
so what we’ll do is just in stand check this layer go to the pen tool click over
here and click over here holding shift so now we have a nice line and a mask
and if you go back to your stroke we can now select that mask right here so if
we’re going to check this back on solo the layer maybe we can actually go here
to the paint style and change this to on transparent and now you’re going to see
a nice line right here which you can make thicker if you want to but I won’t
do that so at the beginning of your keyframes and while the timeline we want
to go to the start and set this to 50 in the end also 250 and click on a
stopwatch for T start and and then at 1 second or plus/minus 1 second we want to
change this to 0 and this to 100 and now we’re going to have like a nice grow
effect from the center out first you want a keyword select the landscape
frames and again apply the easies effect and go to the graph editor and maybe
ramp it a little bit so if we zoom in here we have something like this going on and
this is going to be our beat player start up okay
as you can see it’s not perfect for the mask so what we’ll do is zoom in and
click on the mask and actually move it down a little bit and there we go okay
another thing that we want to do is actually fade in our actual audio
spectrum and our text here so click on the audio spectrum layer go to on the
text go to the timecode and press T on the keyboard change it to zero go to the
beginning and create a keyframe for both of these layers and then right here we
want to fade it in at 100% and this is fading in while this line is now growing
and now it’s really going to not attract its kind of an effect okay
I think we’re done here apart from that we can just duplicate this audio
spectrum and press s on the keyboard and change the size is something like
insanely high something like 500 and then move it up until we actually see
our spectrum again then move it in a nice composition and press T on the
keyboard change this to 50 at the last opacity when it’s faded in right here
instead of 100 change it to 50 then go to effects blur and sharpen Gaussian
blur and increase the blur so now it’s like out of focus we still have
something going on in the background okay pretty cool and that’s it so this
is the first tutorial on how to create a nice audio spectrum next week we’re
going to take a look on all the particles like I said in the beginning
of this video if you want you can go ahead on our website we have a template
ready to use you can easily change the cores and stuff like that so it’s all
prepared to be user-friendly it includes a tutorial on how to change everything
link is in the description and I’ll see you in the next one if you like this

Work Outfit Ideas: Business Casual Attire for Women | JCPenney


Hi, guys. I’m Sage, senior styling
director at J.C. Penney, and I’m here to answer some
of your styling questions. Alissa, one of our customers, is
getting back into the workforce, and I’m going to provide some
great business casual options. Let’s go shopping. I’m back from our J.C.
Penney store, and I’ve asked some of our home office associates
to model these outfits for you. I love this business casual look. I’ve taken a classic pencil skirt and
paired it with a plaid, casual top. Instead of tucking it in, think
about making a tie at the waist, then rolling the sleeve to
keep your outfit relaxed. And then finish the look with
a plaid, open toe, block heel and a pair of silver hoops. So getting dressed for work
doesn’t have to be hard. Think about your casual
dresses, like this a.n.a dress you might typically wear on the
weekend, but wear it with a block heel, and add a fun fringe statement earring. You’ll need an office bag, so select
something a little less traditional, like this fun Arizona backpack. We all know the office can be a little
chilly, so grab your jean jacket, and pop it over your shoulders
to complete your fabulous look. Who likes casual Fridays? I love this dark denim skinny
jean paired with this dressy top. You add a blazer for
more of a polished look. And when you’re going from
meeting to meeting, grab this bag, add your cell phone, your lipstick. This outfit is totally business
on the top, casual on the bottom.

British Airways All Business Class Jet to New York


– Have you ever flown to Shannon
and JFK from here before? – No, this is my first time. I’ve never seen it so crowded because the airport is so small. This is a really comfortable way to go to Ireland. – The aircraft can’t take the full weight and the full fuel off the runway. – Greatest secret of British Airways now. – And we flew at 39,000 feet today. Mach is actually seven nine, so it’s .79, at the speed of sound. – What a memory. (upbeat pop music) (easy listening music) (voice on the PA system) – Have you ever flown to Shannon
and JFK from here before? – No this is my first time. – This is your first time okay. So let me explain to you how this works. Your flight is due to depart at 9:40, your flight to Shannon where
you’ll arrive there 11:00, once you arrive there
at 11:00 you de-board, when you de-board please
make sure you take all your belongings off there,
don’t leave them on there because they will do the
screening of the plane. Once you’re in Shannon you’ll
go through immigration, all your paperwork and
everything will be checked there, once that’s all checked and
cleared then you’ll go back onto the same plane, it usually takes about 15 minutes maximum, you’ll go back to the
same plane, same seat, and then you’ll fly
off to JFK where at JFK you’ll go through as a domestic passenger. – Oh sounds lovely. (upbeat pop music) – Well this is so crazy
at London City Airport, I’ve never seen so crowded
because the airport is so small. (upbeat pop music) Well it was absolutely
madness at the City Airport. The security check, half an hour queues, the space is just so limited here. I think UK has one of
the highest airport tax in the world but the
facility isn’t very great. With no lounge at the London City Airport for passenger flying on this flight, you will get a voucher for
breakfast in a restaurant at the terminal. Hi is this your first
time flying this flight? – This is my first time
flying this flight, yeah very exciting. – I was told this is all business class, only eight rows. Feels like your private
jet with your own family going on this flight. Are you excited? – Yes I am excited how bout you? – Super excited. (laughter) – You can now board
the aircraft thank you. (plane engines) – I’m here today, I’m
flying possibly the smallest commercial plane, transatlantic. The A318 Baby Bus
transatlantic to New York. Hi there. – Good morning sir, how are you? – Nice to see you. – Please may I check your boarding card? – Yes I’m at the back of the bus. – You are you’re 8A sir aren’t you? – 8A but still in business class. (laughter) – Absolutely sir. Sir my name’s Chris I’m
your CSM, welcome aboard. If you need any help today please just ask and there we are 8A welcome. – Pleasure flying with you Chris. – Thank you sir we’re
sorry to keep you waiting. Nice right, isn’t it? – Yes very nice.
– Very nice, yeah. All right take care. – Good job! – Hello good morning hi. (classical music) – Hello. – Hello. – I’m all the way at the
very end of the plane, this is my seat. – Very warm welcome to you. – Yeah thank you very much. – Welcome aboard sir.
– My pleasure. (upbeat pop music) Oh my God this is so cool, this
is at the end of the plane, I’m siting at the very
very end of the plane still business class only eight rows. Look at this, no one around. – Good morning Mr. Chui, welcome
on board, my name is Chris, I’ll be your senior crew member. This is today’s menu for you. – So you’ve heard about our
London City New York route. – I heard about this so much. – We’ve been operating
now for nearly 10 years. – Is that so, nearly 10 years? – And it’s our… – 10th anniversary. – Anniversary. – Wow! – Yeah we’re very proud of our… – Finally I made it just before 10 years! I knew this flight number a long time, this used to be the
Concorde’s flight number, Speedbird 001, 002. And now today I just saw
there’s only three cabin crew on this flight. – Yes there’s only three cabin crew. – And we only have like 17 passengers? – This is our first quiet day today. – Able to give a really good service. – Amazing. It must be one of your
favourite flights this one. – Oh yes, yeah absolutely. – Favourable passenger
people for the crew. – Immensely proud, yeah it’s
really really really lovely. – [Pilot] Welcome aboard
this London City section going up to Shannon first. We’ll get getting off in Shannon, you’ll get some new flight crew there, but your wonderful cabin
crew team good news for you are taking you all the way through to JFK. And for this section
to Shannon is one hour and five minutes. (plane engine) (lively contemporary music) – We’ve got some heavy
turbulence just after takeoff, it was very bumpy and lots of cloud, no feasible ceiling yet still climbing. (easy listening music) – Would you like to try
our vegetarian sushi today or would you prefer the fruit starter? – The fruit starter please. – Here we are. Your champagne, enjoy. And your fruit. And especially for you I’ve
been baking all morning, my finest recipe. – Oh what a surprise! – Our lovely biscuits. – Biscuits! – Nice. (easy listening music) This is a really comfortable
way to go to Ireland, wish every flight from London
to Ireland was like this. I got a flat bed. (easy listening music) (plane landing) (easy listening music) – One down, one to go. – Hello captain, thanks
for flying me here. – Safe pleasure, this is the show bit. Hi good morning. My name is Andrei Clayer,
I’m one of the Captains on the Airbus through on our
London City to New York route. – Now Captain I want to ask
you how long is the runway at London City? – London City’s a short runway,
and it’s a narrow runway. 1500 metres approximately
long and only 30 metres wide. – Is that the reason we cannot
do a nonstop to New York? We have to make a tack stop at Shannon? – Correct, so the aircraft
can’t take the full weight and the full fuel off
the runway at London City and meet the climb gradient, so the compromise is to come
to Shannon and then refuel and the passengers can
clear US immigration. – Brilliant, that’s a
really good strategy. How long this aeroplane can
fly because we only have 32 business class seats
so it’s fairly light. So what’s the range
given this configuration? – Well when it’s fully
fueled up the configuration is to New York and beyond
so it’s probably an eight and a half hour,
nine hour endurance. – My name’s Jeremy, I’m the First Officer, we’ve just finished the
flight from London to Shannon. We’re gonna get off now and hand over to another fight crew, the
reason being it’s quite close to our hour limits if
we carry on to New York. So to protect the operation
we do a crew change and we’ll come back
tomorrow and we’ll take the next service to New York. (easy listening music) – Well nice to see you again Chris. – Nice to see you again welcome back. – Super easy transit. – Absolutely slick and
this is gonna save you hours at the other end. – I knew this is great. – Fantastic sir.
– Really really good. – I’m really pleased that
you found it very easy. We wish more people would come
and try it because obviously they’re so slick, so professional. – It’s almost like the greatest secret of British Airways now. – I didn’t want to say that but yes sir, you’re absolutely right. – Hello. – Hello again. – Good to see you again. – Welcome back.
– Welcome back. – 15 minutes only. – How was that, 15 minutes? – Yeah short transit, amazing. – Isn’t good isn’t it? – It was a really short transit. We were off board around
11:30, now at 12:00 ready to go as the captain said. It feels really intimate,
you know the crew already, you’re coming on board
again and you know where you’re sitting, everything’s familiar, so it’s a great experience. There’s also a very funny
US Immigration Officer, he actually knew me
from YouTube and he said I knew this guy. Of course I’m not able to
film at the US Immigration, I’m not able to have him on the camera, but you know who you are
and thank you so much for watching my videos. – White Company amenity kit for you. – Thank you. – [Pilot] Now climbing up
to 39,000 feet for the crew, very quick flight time today,
just six hours and 30 minutes. (plane engine) (easy listening music) – There’s only one class on
this plane, business class. It feels private jet,
it really feels private. – Sir good afternoon, can I
offer you an Ipad for your entertainment onboard today? – Sure. (easy listening music) – Your lunch is served sir. Potato and Stilton soup for your starter. (easy listening music) 2018, yeah? Would you like to try it first? – No it’s okay. – Would you like us to pour it? (easy listening music) – The catering is from Do & Co. The presentation is
pretty nice, nice glasses, brad trade, looks a bit posh and upscale. The taste was okay, it wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad either. (easy listening music) – This is all by The White Company. Very prestigious. – From UK from London. – Yeah uh huh. Inside the first thing we have is the ground mattress. There’s the duvet which
is really really soft. Lots of ladies like to
wear, this is a shawl, cause it’s also very very soft. – Oh yeah. (easy listening music) – Enjoy your rest. (easy listening music) – Well I must say the bedding
is really really nice. Very very plush pillow, very
very nice duvet, soft blanket, this goes fully flat as well. It’s not angle flat,
it’s actually full flat. So it’s amazing it can go full flat on a small plane like this. I slept so well, I slept four
and a half hours rock solid. I think I was just
previously exhausted from the last three days spotting
around London Heathrow. – This is the Ploughman’s lunch. – Ploughman’s. – With the traditional
scotch egg, the ham, Stilton, pickle, salami, the three
different kinds of breads, freshly baked scones with the jam and also the sweet treat. (easy listening music) – Mr. Chui I just wanted
to come and say thank you very much for choosing us. – Thank you, thank you very much. – We hope you’ve enjoyed
your flight with us. – Oh tremendous, really a pleasure. – Thank you very much and
hopefully we’ll see you again soon sir. – It’s just so private
with only 20 passenger, everyone have a empty seat next door. I actually used some of my
soon to expire Qatar Airways Q Miles to redeem on
British Airways as their One World Alliance, so
70,000 miles on Q Miles for 446 pound is a very high
surcharge and a very high tax out of London. – Cabin crew would like
to thank you very much for all your hard work today. Please take your seats now for landing. (easy listening music) – As you have already cleared
US Immigration and Customs at Shannon, you’ll be arriving
as a domestic customer. All of us at British Airways and indeed the One World Alliance
would like to welcome home our customers who live here in New York. I wish those of you visiting
a very enjoyable stay. – It’s been a pleasure, absolute pleasure. – Yeah thank you very much,
see you around, bye bye. – Take care. – Hi I’m Captain Nick
Lamont and I’ve just flown you over to New York
from Shannon we got on, and some other guys flew you
to Shannon from another city. And you asked for some
information on the flight, so we flew at 39,000 feet today. We flew at Mach .79, so it’s
.79 is the speed of sound. The distance was 2,875 miles. We used about 13 tonnes of fuel. – I think I’ve just flown
the smallest commercial aeroplane transatlantic. Do you agree with that? – Yeah, I think so yeah. – Think so as well. The A380 is the smallest
commercial airlines transatlantic. What’s great about it is coming in, arriving as domestic
passenger I don’t have to fight for the queue
to clear immigration. And also we arrive at Gate 1, that was the old Concorde gate. I took that gate when I
took the Concorde in 2003. What a memory! (easy listening music)

Professor Kindt Interview Fox Business Network


>>Stuart: ACROSS THE STATION FEWER PEOPLE ARE BUYING LOTTERY TICKETS. ULDN’T YOU THINK WITH THE ECONOMY THE WAY IT IS, MORE PEOPLE WILL BE TAKING THEIR CHANCES WITH A QUICK PICK? APPARENTLY NOT. SO SAYS MY NEXT GUESS. HE IS PROFESSOR JOHN KENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF IL■LINOIS. PROFESSOR, WOULD YOU EXPLAIN WHY LOTTRY SALES ARE DOWN?>>I’M GOING TO THROW YOU A RVE. I THINK PEOPLE ARE GETTING SMARTER. THEY’RE TIRED OF■ THROWING THEI MONEY AWAY, THROWING IT INTO THE TOILEOF THE LOTTERY. THEY’RE STARTING TO PUT THOSE DOLLARS BAC INTO THE CONSUMER ECONOMY. THEY HAD RATHER SAVE THOSE DOLLARS AND PUT THEM INTO REQUIREMENT CD TYPES OF INVESTMENTS. THIS IS ACTUALLY GOOD NEWS FOR THE ECONOMY. AND THE SMARTEST THING WE COULD DO IS INCOURAGE PEOPLE NOT TO PLAY THE LOTTERY BUT TO GET ■ REINVESTED IN THE CONSUMER ECONOMY. IT WOULD HAVE A MULTIPLIER EFFECT. >>Stuart: PROFESSOR, I’M SURPRISED TO HEAR THIS. I THINK TERRIFIC NEWS THAT WE ARE DELIVERING TO US. HOW ABOUT THIS: IS IT POSSIBLE THE GAMBLIN MARKET IS BECOMING SATUTED? WHEN I FIRST CAME TO THIS COUNTRY 35 YEARS AGO YOU CODN’T GAMBLE EXCEPT IN LAS VEGAS AND EVENTUALLY NEW JERSEY. I CAN GO ANYWHERE NOW AND TAKE A CHANCE. >>ABSOLUTELY. YOU KNOW, WE HAD IN THE 19 — IN 1999 T■HE U.S. NATIONAL GAMBLE BEING IMPACT STUDY COMMISSION CALLED FOR A MORE CORE YUM ON THE EXPANSION OF GAMBLING INCLUDING ROLLBACKS ON VARIOUS GAMES IN THE STAD LOTTERIES. WE HAD THIS U.S. FEDERAL COMMISSION THAT SAID THIS IS LOSE/LOSE FOR THE UNITED STATES AND FOR THE WORLD ECONOMY. YOU DIDN’T SEE FDR IN THE GREAT DEPRESSION SAYING WE CAN GAMBLE OURSELVES RICH. LET’S BUILD CASINOS. ACTUALLY GAMBLING IS THE LIKE THROWING GASOLINE ON THE RECESSION. AND PEOPLE ARE GONNA HAVE TO DECIDE, GOVERNMENT O■@ICIALS ARE GOING TO HAVE ONTO DECIDE IF THEY’RE GOING TO KEEP ON GAMBLING THIS MONEY AWAY OUT OF THE CONSUMER ECONOMY OR PUT IT BACK INTO THE CONSUMER ECONOMY AND STIMULATE THAT ECONOMY. THAT WOULD BE A HALF TRIAL DOLLAR STIMULUS. Stuart: BUT YOU’RE FORGETTING SOMETHING. LEGALIZED LOTTERY GAMBLING THE IS MOST EFFICIENT WAY OF TAXING POOR PEOPLE. >>RIGHT. THINK OF THE ETHICS OF THIS. WE TALK ABOUT ETHICS IN VARIOUS BUSINESS CONNOTATION. WE HAVE GOVERNMENT ADVERTISING SOMETHING THAT NO OTHER BUSINESS COULD ADVERTISE BECAUSE IT WOULD BE FRAUDULENT FOR THEM TO DO SO. WE HAVE GOVERNMENTS PROMOTING SOMETHING THEY KNOW CREATES NEW ADDICTED GAMBLERS. THE NATIONAL COMMISSION COMPARED THIS TO DRUG ADDICTION. THEY SAID THESE VIDEO LOTTERY TERMINALS, ELECTRONIC GAMBLING IS LIKE THE CRACK COCAINE TO CREATING NEW ADDICTED GAMBLERS. GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE FEEDING ADDICTION, PREYING ON THEIR OWN CITIZENS. WE SHOULD STOP THIS PREDATORY TYPE OF GAMBLING AND REINVEST IN THE CONSUMERECONOMY. >>Stuart: PROFESSOR WE’RE OUT OF TIME BUT HEARD YOUR MESSAGE LOUD AND CLEAR.
